This image called out to me to post in monotone.

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Superb!!!! Outstanding image and processing. Man on the left appears he has just fallen. The woman in the frame really adds to the image.
5***** and more!

@Barbara: Yes, he was just going down as I shot, and those at the right were about to help the wounded. Thank you, Barb.

Jen from Alpharetta, United States

Wow this looks straight out of a history book!

@Jen: Thanks, Jen.

SOUL AFLAME from United Kingdom

Absolutely right Judy. Mono works so perfectly here to give an air of authenticity that would be robbed by the use of colours. A terrific frame.

@SOUL AFLAME: Thanks, Paul ... I appreciate your words.

Sonia Nansid from Stockholm, Sweden

Your processing here is excellent.

@Sonia Nansid: Thank you, Sonia.

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

Excellent choice of B&W for this shot Judy! It strips away the colour and pagentry and leaves us with the stark reality of war! I would love to see this with a light sepia wash! Well done! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: I find the color easier to 'live with' in that it is "pageantry" and this one painful by comparison. I sent you a copy w/the sepia wash you suggested. ;D

mhelene from France

@Franz: Thank you, Franz.

Japanalia from Yokohama, Japan

This is very well done! You found the right tonality and the grainy texture is of great effect!
